“President Mnangagwa has addressed the need for good and pragmatic branding so as to accelerate the attainment of Vision 2030 targets earlier than the originally planned, and move Zimbabwe to a developed and high-income status,” he said.
“All efforts by President Mnangagwa are focused on achieving the engagement and re-engagement strategy as espoused in the National Development Strategy (NDS) 1.”
